Audi e-tron GT road-trip: exploring its gran turismo DNA

The last word after-dark gentle present

It’s estimated that, attributable to gentle air pollution, 85% of the UK has by no means seen a very darkish sky. However, because of its sparsely populated nature, Kielder Forest has been named one of many UK’s Darkish Sky Parks and is now house to Kielder Observatory.

Designed by the agency of celebrated architect Charles Barclay to evoke the deck and superstructure of a ship, Kielder Observatory’s land-pier design – clad in a spruce and larch pores and skin over Douglas Fir columns and cross beams – juts out over the sting of Black Fell, providing an uninterrupted view of the southern sky.

As we head up the slender gravel street in direction of it, we deal with the slippery unfastened floor at a way more sedate tempo than the likes of Blomqvist and co did on the World Rally stage. However even GTs have to move off the crushed monitor from time to time. So, having that additional all-electric quattro confidence is one other boon to the Audi e-tron GT’s go-anywhere no-compromise ‘gran turismo’ credentials.

Equally, our Audi e-tron GT quattro’s adaptive air suspension smooths out the bumps, whereas the carry mode lets us increase the physique by 20mm. This proved good whereas driving over pace bumps within the coronary heart of Liverpool. Right here it helps us navigate the numerous unfastened rocks and potholes with ease.

After a extremely inspiring night time of stargazing, powered by Kielder Observatory’s skilled astronomers, it’s time to move house. As we make our manner again down the path, the non-obligatory ambient lighting bundle with 30 adjustable colors lends our automobile’s inside a warming glow, whereas our Matrix LED headlights carve a path by the night time.
